Snow Child events north and south

Dear fun-seeking reader,

I want to let you know about some events I have coming up.

This Friday I’ll be in Anchorage at Cyrano’s Theatre Company with Leigh Newman. She recently published her memoir Still Points North about growing up in Alaska, seeing the world, and then coming home again.

The event is 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, April 26. Expect a reading from each of us as well as “snacks, fizzy beverages and merriment!” It should be lots of fun.

Then next week I head south to Bend, Oregon for Deschutes Public Library’s  “A Novel Idea…Read Together.” It has been an delightful honor to have The Snow Child chosen for their annual program.

Everyone in the publishing world keeps telling me this is one of the best community reads programs in the country. It kicked off  with three weeks of free cultural programs, book discussions, films, food tastings, lectures and art openings.

The program culminates with two presentations in Bend. On Friday May 3, I’ll be reading at the Tower Theatre, but I understand these tickets are sold out. However, I’ll also be at a non-ticketed event on May 4th at 11:00 a.m. at Ridgeview High School in Redmond.

So whether you’re in Anchorage, Alaska, or Bend, Oregon, I hope you’ll stop by and say hello.




  • Eowyn, I wish I was going to be back to see you in the Bend program, but unfortunately I will miss it. I hope to see you some other time, talking about The Snow Child or your next book, which I am eager to read. Meanwhile, I have been spreading the news of your wonderful writing, and have encouraged many book clubs to read The Snow Child, including one down here in Baja, in Mendocino and in Bend. Congratulations on all of your well deserved accolades and keep on writing!!

    Hi, I’m Cameron’s L.A. Grandma,

    I was at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books on Saturday and Sunday on the USC campus, and “The Snow Child” was prominently displayed at the Vrooman’s Bookstore tent!

    I’m from Bend, Oregon. And I can’t tell you enough how much The Snow Child spoke to my feelings about Bend in the winter. I know it’s not even close to Alaska’s snowy cold months, but what you captured in your words really spoke to my heart. I’m sad that I’m not in Bend this weekend, as I live in Los Angeles now, but I know that Central Oregon will give you a warm welcome!
